I want to love this (the shoes/socks, absolutely) but I feel like the sweatshirt dress doesn’t fit well! I’m all about thinking outside the box as much as possible, but – always – the clothing must fit!!
Really digging these oversized sweater-dresses these days, a great trend that’s come right from the streets. I found some great ones in Seoul for my online store, they look great paired with denim cut-offs and slightly strange accessories, like the ones the girl is wearing!
This really doesn’t look like as it is “on the street”. It looks as you sneaked into someones house early in the morning and shot this the minute she came out of the door:) But a great shot as usual. http://gentlemeter.com
Why a designer would ever utilize a model with visible tattoos puzzles me. In this case, they seem to draw attention away from and cheapen an otherwise attractive product. Tattoos signal risky behavior. For that to be suggested, or worse featured in a health conscious business as competitive as fashion design… well, what’s the upside…? M
â€śWhy a designer would ever utilize a model with visible tattoos puzzles me.â€ť Do you generally understand everything designers do? Why put a birdâ€™s nest in the hair, stripes of color across the entire face, or shave the eyebrows? For starters, this isnâ€™t a model â€“ at least she doesnâ€™t seem to be officially â€śmodelingâ€ť anything here. In fact, the title of the picture is â€śOn the Streetâ€ť, not â€śOn the Catwalkâ€ť. From the Huffington Post 05/14/2012 – â€śDozens of top models have tattoos in various locations on their bodies.â€ť Designers are (and should be) some of the most creative (and often very tattooed) people in the world â€“ why shouldnâ€™t the models be as well? When the designer is coming up with his total vision for a look â€“ this may well include visible tattoos. Tattoos are quite common on people from all walks of life. Why should a model have to abstain?
â€śIn this case, they seem to draw attention away from and cheapen an otherwise attractive product.â€ť What is the â€śproductâ€ť here, exactly? Is it, the clothes, the model, or the total look? I think the outfit is fairly edgy if not just plain ugly â€“ sheâ€™s attractive, but not a traditional or natural beauty, the oversize sweatshirt is hideous, and the shoes and socks are totally wacked â€“ why not a tattoo? Seems fairly logical to me.
â€śTattoos signal risky behavior.â€ť Oh, boy! Now you have ME puzzled. REALLY? Where on earth did you get this idea? What else might a *gasp* tattooed person be capable of? Iâ€™m a tattooed person. Iâ€™m also a transplanted Hoosier who managed to have a successful life in Washington DC for the last 33 years, and retired from my government career in February â€“ Iâ€™m in the process of selling my half-million-dollar condo, so I can move back to be with the good people of Indiana – better watch out for me! â€śRisky behaviorâ€ť â€“ Iâ€™m absolutely baffled. Get a tattoo, end up in prison?!?!?!
â€śFor that (risky behavior) to be suggested, or worse featured in a health conscious business as competitive as fashion designâ€¦ well, whatâ€™s the upsideâ€¦?â€ť OK, at this point I decide, maybe Michael is just having some fun with us. Fashion design as a â€śhealth conscious businessâ€ť? Youâ€™re kidding, right? Anorexic, teen-aged models, unchaperoned and notorious for drinking and drugging their nights away â€“ youâ€™re killinâ€™ me here.
Anyway, Michael, you and Magz have a great Michigan day! Maybe Iâ€™ll come up next spring and weâ€™ll go mushroom hunting â€“ miss those morels from home! Oh, btw, your pictures are beautiful â€“ you should consider selling them! Thanks!
I don’t think I ever posted a comment on your website,
even if I love it so much.
For the first time, I didn’t came for 2 weeks !! So here I was, catching up the photos I haven’t see.
And I fall in love again with your blog (can we call it a blog??). Your photos are just AMAZING, those people that you manage to find are inspiring and incredible.
I don’t know if that’s a sweatshirt, dress, hoody or shirt and frankly I don’t care because it looks both flattering and comfortable. Thumbs up.
The sock / shoe combo on the other hand looks neither flattering nor comfortable. Ick.
She is beautiful, but it is uncomfortable to not see any pant/skirt. It almost feels as if the photographer is not on the street with a stranger, but in the home of someone he is familiar with. There is something to be said for not revealing all for everyone to see.
“…most of the commenters who do not like this post are boys…” I’m not going to tally up the votes by gender, but c’mon this is just AWFUL! She’s wearing essentially a bag, and wool socks with UGLY SHOES. THERE IS NOTHING TO LIKE ABOUT IT! Thank you. Oh, yeah, I’m one of the “boys”.
the tassles on her bracelet
the “footie” socks she seems to have pulled up around her ankle
the shoes she absentmindedly reached for,not even considering “style,”which therefore in my eyes makes for true style
that she has the face of a young Sophia Loren
the background,of course
People, you need to stop making such completely ludicrous comments about tattoos. Its rude. They are risky behavior? Hardly. Tattoo parlors are regulated, and safe. Any half way intelligent person knows this. And the reason designers use them in shows is simple; They find them beautiful. Its fine to not like how they look, but talking as if they were some sort degeneracy is simply ignorant. Try to not be ignorant if possible.
Lovely girl, lovely ink, lovely dress, and the expression on her face is worthy of a painting. What a masterpiece this photo is!!! I have just been staring at it for about twenty minutes. Everything is great, but that face steals the show. COOL SOCKS!
